I have a very good copy of the 24-105 and have tried 6 copies of the new 24-70mk2 and haven't yet found a great copy (and for the price it does need to be great)

I can and have seen the potential in the lens, the best copy was soft at close focusing distances and the worst was very soft on the sides at f8, even at infinity... but the worst one was RAZOR sharp close focus wide open and the one that was soft close up was much better on the sides.

I am currently after yet another copy, but waiting abit, hopefully the next batch will be better.

I also mounted the better copy on my original 5D, results were absolutely incredible, well worth a try

I had a very good copy of the original 28-70L, but the advantages of the new lens are worth it for me.
